Automobile accidents can cause serious injury, or even death, and as roads become more populated, the risk of accidents only increase. In Las Vegas, the ongoing construction and hazards on the roadway and trucking companies using our interstates means increased risks of driving for all of us.
We specialize in truck accidents, which are regulated by the Department of Transportation.

That’s why it’s so important to consult an attorney as soon as possible.
Las Vegas has a growing number of visitors each year and has the best hotels in the world. These hotels are like mini cities and there are many hazards that exist everyday in a hotel. These hazards may be hidden from the ordinary traveler, but experienced lawyers know how to find out how long that hazard has been there and when the hotel knew about it. In these situations, hotels have a duty to correct the hazardous condition to make the property safe so you can enjoy the premises like everyone else without fear of being injured.
The types of events that happen because of poor conditions on the premises include: slip and fall, trip and fall, broken stairs, broken handrails, floor mats that slip, inadequate security, slippery tile, vacuum cords, elevators, walkways. The ways in which a person can be injured on someone’s property is almost limitless, but here are some commonly seen injuries sustained in hotel rooms: slipping in bathrooms without slip-resistant mats, shower door falling off, showerheads falling off, coffee makers falling over, and bedbugs. Other hazardous conditions include changes in step elevation causing someone to trip, residue, water or substance on the floor that is unexpected causing one to slip, poor lighting in areas of transition, such as doorways, hallways or steps that causes someone to stumble and fall.
Hotels should be an enjoyable experience, but when management does not do their job injuries can occur. Most of the time these injuries are avoidable.
Why do I need a lawyer?
When an accident occurs, many times the crucial evidence is lost or destroyed. Our team at Simon Law understands that preservation of evidence from a hotel is crucial to your case and the earlier we get involved the better.

Las Vegas has one of the most active construction industries in the country. The risk of construction site injuries rises every time a casino or hotel seeks a new or more innovative construction project. Construction injuries can be very serious and may involve a painful personal injury, permanent disability, or even death.

We live in a society where official organizations hold the products we use to a certain standard of safety, giving us confidence that the products we purchase are safe. However, product manufacturers are not always as responsible as they should be, and product recalls are all too common after someone suffers a personal injury.
As consumers, we feel betrayed when product manufacturers fail to properly design or label their products, and are unsure where to turn after being stuck with medical expenses, missed work or other damages. Simon Law understands the far reaching effects of injuries caused by defective products, and offer an experienced product liability lawyer to help you recover your financial losses, and get the compensation you deserve.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call CPSC’s hotline at (800) 638-2772 or visit CPSC’s web site.
According to the United States Humane Society, about 47 percent of households in America own at least one dog. Unfortunately, not all of these dog owners are as responsible as they should be when it comes to the safety of their community.
Whether intentional or not, personal injury from a dog bite can be devastating and owners must be held accountable for the actions of their pets. While homeowners insurance might cover some of the financial loss associate with a dog bite, it is often necessary to seek the representation of an experienced attorney in order to be fully compensated.
No matter how much an owner insists that their dog is friendly, the fact is that animals are unpredictable, and any animal can bite under the right circumstances.
Owners are legally obligated to keep their animals restrained on all public property, including parks not specifically designated as dog parks. If you’ve been bitten or attacked by a dog, hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and get the compensation you deserve.
When it comes to drunk driving accidents, these gloves do come off. Drunk drivers causing accidents is unacceptable, and these drivers can be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
It is important to understand the criminal laws concerning the prosecution of these drivers and how the laws relate to your personal injury case. In some cases, a criminal conviction can automatically establish the proof necessary to win your personal injury case.
Punitive damages may also be available. This is money awarded to you solely to punish the drunk driver, on top of any additional money that you may receive for compensation for your injuries.
Using a cell phone can be the equivalent to drunk driving, and an experienced lawyer is important to secure evidence and make the connection.

Accidents and Injuries can happen at anytime, and the danger might not be as far from home as you think. Life changing events can occur from dangerous products, car and truck accidents, burns, assaults, falls, ice on sidewalks, or falling objects.
Many companies do not properly maintain their premises and rarely follow safety procedures which oftentimes causes severe injuries. Personal Injury is defined as an injury to the body or mind. It can be caused on purpose (in the case of an assault or just having a conscious disregard for the consequences) or occur due to a third party’s negligence (failure to provide safe circumstances, as in the case of an employer with unsafe work conditions or a property owner who fails to inspect and secure their property).
Aside from obtaining the best medical care possible, what can you do about personal injury? The answer is simple – fight back. State laws give personal injury victims a limited amount of time to seek justice by filing a personal injury lawsuit with the hopes of obtaining compensation for expenses such as medical bills, future medical expenses, loss of earnings, and payment for emotional suffering and loss of enjoyment of life due to personal injury.
Time is of the essence to investigate and preserve evidence even before filing a lawsuit. It is in the best interest of injuried victims to seek professional help to obtain the best results to provide the financial security you will need for the remainder of your life.
Accidents can occur unexpectedly, and the ensuing physical and financial damages can be difficult to sort out, especially if these accidents occur on someone else’s property. If you sustain a personal injury on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. A premises liability attorney in Las Vegas can help evaluate your case and pursue compensation if needed.
Premises liabilities can stem from owner negligence of hazardous materials, swimming pools, animals and other factors. Injuries resulting from these types of accidents can result in physical injury, emotional trauma or missed work. Property owners have a legal obligation to minimize these risks, and failure to do so could warrant a personal injury lawsuit.
There are many factors to consider when mounting a premises liability case. For example, being injured on someone else’s property does not automatically mean the owner is legally liable for your injury. To have a successful case, you must show proof of the owner’s negligence – a task that is not always easy to do. That’s why it’s crucial to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Without proper representation, insurance companies may jump on the opportunity to dismiss your claim. To bring justice for those responsible for your injuries, you need aggressive legal representation.
Like many other cities, Las Vegas is experiencing an explosive growth in Uber, Lyft, and other ridesharing services. Many people today prefer using these services as an alternative to a taxi or shuttle. Uber and Lyft are appealing, as these services are convenient and less expensive than some other forms of transportation.
However, the benefits of ridesharing services may come with additional risk. Every day, Uber and Lyft drivers are involved in accidents, some of which they cause. There has also been an increase in rider safety due to drivers and other passengers committing assaults. The pool option within the App that allows you to share rides with other passengers for a reduced fair also increases the risk of dangers for robberies and assaults. We have successfully handled all types of rideshare injuries. If you have been injured as a passenger, motorist, bicyclist, or pedestrian in an accident caused by an Uber or Lyft driver, our experience at Simon Law can help. We have been serving as tough advocates for injured people for decades with an extensive history of recovering record-setting settlements and verdicts for our clients. Schedule a consultation to find out if you have a case and what damages you may be entitled to pursue.
Ridesharing drivers using their personal cars to transport passengers are much like other drivers on the road. Drives may cause accidents through various driving behaviors, including:
- Distracted driving: Uber and Lyft drivers operate by using the company app on their cell phones. Drivers may not always pull over and park before checking the app. This may happen when they are waiting for a ride or picking up and transporting passengers.
- Speeding: Time is money. The faster Uber and Lyft drivers pick up riders and get passengers to their destinations, the more money they make. It may be a temptation for ridesharing drivers to exceed the speed limit or drive too fast for traffic or weather conditions.
- Fatigued driving: Like other people, Uber and Lyft drivers are working for a living and may go to work without adequate rest. Unlike commercial truck drivers, ridesharing drivers are not regulated as to how much rest they have between trips.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs: Despite background checks, some Uber and Lyft drivers have been found to be driving impaired by alcohol or drugs.
